How One Family Has Kept the Beer Flowing for Over 150 Years

The following video is brought to you courtesy of the Great Big Story YouTube Channel. Click the video below to watch it now.

Once upon a time, in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, a German immigrant named Jacob Leinenkugel came upon a source of pure spring water and 2,500 thirsty lumberjacks. So like his ancestors before him—and with his wife, Josephine, working tirelessly alongside—Jacob started brewing beer. A family affair from the beginning, the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company has kept the taps flowing for over 150 years. Has it been easy? Heck no!
